October Round Up 2013

The past month of October has been super busy for us – launching Gemma Collins new fashion collection and opening a brand new store in Leeds! Here’s our quick round up of October’s highlights…

Vogue’s Fashion Night Out came to our hometown of Manchester for the very first time! The city centre was filled with fashionista’s on the hunt for the latest must have pieces. Our store in the Arndale centre got involved with discounts, competitions and goodie bags. Did you visit us that day? If so let us know what you thought?

We can’t help but love Manchester and it’s style, so if you missed out on reading it the first time, check out our post on how Manchester’s music industry has influenced the trends.

One of the big stories of the month was when Elle magazine featured the gorgeous Melissa McCarthy on its November front cover. But it divided opinion as a lot of people felt that although it’s great to see a plus size woman on the cover of the high fashion magazine, the image did more to cover her up than anything else.

We love her edgy fashion look, but what do you guys think? Read the full story here.


In October we saw Gemma Collin’s new line for us and we love the more elegant and sophisticated pieces, there’s party tops and stunning lace dresses as well as a pair of on-trend studded leggings.

In October we opened our eighth store in Leeds at the White Rose Centre alongside our brother brand Jacamo. We’re so pleased with the new branch and if you’re nearby and haven’t visited us yet, pop in and check out what’s new in store!
